A Message From Our Director

November 21, 2023

Dear Friends,

We are writing to you today to provide an update on our Baling Room Fund. As you may know, Renewed Hope Ministries suffered a catastrophic fire that destroyed our baling room last spring. Baling operations have historically been a major source of funding for our ministry, comprising approximately 25% of our revenue, and our inability to bale clothes for six months was a significant financial hardship.

However, God is good! By His grace, we were able to rebuild the baling room and have resumed baling operations. Still, the cost of rebuilding coupled with the loss of revenue cannot be ignored.

In September, we set a goal to raise $50,000 by December 31, 2023, to recoup our losses and help us move forward with our mission into the new year. To date, we have received $13,000 in donations toward this goal.

God is our provider and sustainer, and we are trusting Him to supply the remaining $37,000 in partnership with His faithful servants.

To those who have already donated to the Baling Room Fund, we want to say a huge THANK YOU! Your gift directly impacts our ministry and helps us fulfill our mission to provide a Christ-centered discipleship program for men struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

If you haven’t donated yet but feel the Lord leading you to give, we encourage you to donate online or mail a check made payable to Renewed Hope Ministries. Please designate all donations to the “Baling Room Fund,” so we can track our progress towards our goal. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

In Christ,

Bert D. Crowe
Executive Director
